Elvira's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped me buy a vacuum, equipment, and gets me closer to being able to buy the car I need to grow my cleaning business.

Elvira's story

I was born in Ceballos Durango, Mexico. I grew up in a large family, and I am the second of nine children. I've been working since I was 12 years old, doing all sorts of work from washing dishes and cleaning houses. Because of this, I wasn't able to study. However, I've always had a desire to help my family in their financial needs. Once married, I came to the United States so that we could guarantee a better future for our growing family. Our children's education was something that was incredibly important for us in making our decision. Today, I am very proud of my three children, who've lived up to our wishes for them. For instance, my daughter recently graduated from high school with a 4.0 GPA, and is now just finished her first year of college where I'm very proud of the work she's been able to accomplish. This is my motivation to work and create my business.
